Indeed. I don't particularly view "working around" OP spells as some test of my manhood, when I could be spending that time and effort on better things. A quick and dirty fix is simply having the save repeat--like it does for nearly every other disabling spell in the entire game, including those of much higher level.Then as the DM you should absolutely do something about the spell, whether its having a talk with your players or adjusting the spell.
The DM's fun is the most important...because your also doing a lot of work. Players don't have to do much for their fun, so if its diminished slightly they will still find plenty of ways to enjoy things. But if a DM is not enjoying the game....that quickly leads to burnout....and then the game ends. I have both seen it and dealt with it personally several times over my 20 years of gaming/Dming.
So don't feel bad about making adjustments to ensure your own enjoyment.
